Need help embedding a video
Trying to embed a video – would like a visual screen shot of the video to be displayed in ‘preview mode’ as it shows up when I add the code into html. Unfortunatley when I go to ‘preview’ mode – it shows up a text link. How do I change this?
The blog I need help with is reginarealtors.wordpress.com.
From where are you trying to embed the video? You can check this page to find specific information for video services:
Thank you for this.. I took the “code” off of CTV’s “The Social”.
When I “edit’ and embbed the code, initially under “visual” the video is displayed. Then when I click “update” and refresh the page – the video shows up as a link to a code. Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong?
Please see below the code to the video clip.
<iframe src=”https://bmplayer-a.akamaihd.net/shareable/embedssl.html?dc=the_social_web&cid=870281&col=379&w=640&h=360&pl=0&plh=0&adSite=ctv.thesocial&adZone=video&omniAcct=ctvgmtvectvdesktop,ctvgmtvectvglobalsuite§ion=ctvshows&site=ctvshows&shareUrl=&v7=social&v8=video&v9=&v10=” width=”640″ height=”360″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”true” webkitallowfullscreen=”true” mozallowfullscreen=”true” ></iframe>
That iframe code will not work.
re: embedding videos
We embed videos into pages and posts. The video embeds in posts and pages that WordPress.com supports for all of our blogs – no upgrade required are found here.
Video shortcodes are here http://en.support.wordpress.com/shortcodes/#video
Note to post your own videos requires a videopress upgrade unless they are on youtube or another source site that is supported and the videopress support doc location is https://en.support.wordpress.com/videopress/ As a workaround, keep in mind that you can also upload your media to another service like youtube videos and insert it into your posts from there.
For youtube embedding into wordpress.COM blogs see here https://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/
For using the shortcode see here https://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/#embedding-with-a-shortcode
For troubleshooting see here https://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/#troubleshooting
NOTE: If you are trying to embed a youtube channel code that will not work.
